longed to yesterday's list, having come in
after the closing of the Sunday's report.
Monday has usually been a heavy day for
new cases on account of hold-overs from
Bunday, and If the number of new cases
for the next few days continue small then
It can be said that the situation Is really
improving. Of the new foci four are up

greater portion of the new cases Is below
Canal street.

fieople with the restrictive and suppressive

against Its Jewish subjects.

which lasted several hours, believe that In

the brief communications authorized to be
given to the press, which were disposed of
today are In substance ss follows:
First Russia's recognition of Japan'a
"preponderating Influence and sin-clal posi
tion in I'ona, which Russia henceforth
agrees Is outside its sphere of influence,
Japan binding itself to recognize the sov
ereignty of the reigning family, but with
the rignt to give aiiviir and assistance to
Improve the civil administration of tha
Second Mutual obligation to evacuate
Manchuiia, each to surrender all special
prl lieges in that province, mutual obliga
tion to respect the "territorial Integrity" of
China and to maintain the principle of
equal opportunity for the commerce and
Industry of all nations In that province
(open door).
Third The cession to China of the Chi
nese Eastern railroad from Harbin south
ward. Future Status of Hallrond.
There never was any question about tha
acceptance on the part of M. Wltte of these
"articles,'' the first two covering In more
emphatic form the contention of Japan In
the diplomatic struggle which preceded hos
tilities. The third la a natural consequence
of the result of war. The cession of the
railroad, the building of which cost Russia
an Immense sum, estimated by some at be
tween ilii,oi,tKi and IJOO.OOO.CKKI Is to China.
Japan and China, therefore, will arrange
between themselves the method by which
the former Is to be remunerated, and
through this financial operation Japan
might have a very considerable portion of
Its claim for the expenses of the war liqui
dated. The railroad Is ostensibly the prop
erty of the Russian-Chinese bank, although
built by government money advanced
through the bank, and since (ta completion
operated, managed and policed by the Rus
sian government. Japan cannot take tha
railroad Itself. To place Itself In Russia's
shoes regarding the railroad would be mil
itarily to control the destinies of the three
provinces of Manchuria, which It has prom
ised to return to China. But Japan Is en
titled to rrlmbusement for the expense to
which It has been put In restoring tha
railroad below the present position of Line
viteh's army, rebuilding the bridges and
narrowing the gauge. If China could not
find the money some other power or pow
ers might do so, and the road would be
come hypothecated to the powers which ad
vanced the money as other Chinese roada
are to those which advanced the money
for their construction. It was M. Wltta
himself who organized the Russo-Chinese
bank In IMS,' and who has always been con
sidered the real organizer of the Chinese
Eastern company. M. Berg, the attorney
of the Russo-Chlnese bank, which owns
practically all. If not all, of the shares of
the road, Is attached to the Russian mle
sion. Both Sessions Amicable.
Both sessions of the conference today are
described as "amicable." There were sev
eral slight Jars but none of them serious.
The plenipotentiaries are showing admir
able temper. The change In the weather
may be partially responsible for the se
renity manifested at the conference table,
but It would be perhaps too much to say
thnt the fate of such a gigantic nego
tiation had been effected by a few de
grees of temperature and a few thousand
Tomorrow In the ordinary course of pro
ceedings the first great stumbling block
to a treaty of peace should be reached, aa
after Port Arthur and the leases of Liao
Tung, which are Included In article four
and which M. Wltte Is undoubtedly pre
pared with slight modifications to accept,
comes article fivethe cession of Sakhalin.
But it Is by no means certain that when
this obstacle Is reached It will not ha
postponed until all the articles upon which
agreement is easy or possible are dis
puted of. If this course Is allowed, and the
Associated Press has high authority for
the opinion that it will be. It will Indi
cate a disposition to put off the real strug
gle to the very lust, and the longer the
conference endures the brighter the pros
pects of a treaty are likely to become.
"Every day they sit," said a very high
authority, "Increases the chances of peace."
Snto I Optimistic.
Mr. Sato told the Associated Press cor
respondent tonight that he had come to
Portsmouth hopeful of a successful Issue
of the negotiations and that nothing had
occurred to niter his optimism.
The language of the three articles
adopted today will form practically tks)
text of the "treaty of Washington" If one
Is signed, subject, of course, to a final
revision. Each aide has agreed 10 the
arthies and they are Included In the pro
tocols of each day's session which are
officially signed by the plenipotentiaries
the next morning.
In addition to the minutes kept by each
side, there Is an abbreviated record of the
discussions giving the arguments made by
each side on every point, which are dally
attested so that when the conference Is
ended the record cf the proceedings will
be complete. Of course, the agreement
artlclu hy article, dovs not bind either
RjsMla or Japan until a final agreement
Is reached and the treaty la signed.
It Is. however, slguifiiant that Mr. Sato,
while specifically stating that he did not
speak officially, gave it as his opinion
that each power had now bound Itself to
the armies agreed to.
Russians Claim On Victory.
In the discussion of the second article
(covering the evacuation of Manchuria) It
Is positively stated that Russia won a vic
tory. Baron Komura, so it is declared,
wanted to limit the obligation to evacuate
tlanchurU and to surrender special f'vV
